IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

MECHANICAL BEHAVIOUR OF LABORATORY MADE FREEZE-BONDS AS A FUNCTION OF SUBMERSION TIME, INITIAL ICE TEMPERATURE AND SAMPLE SIZE
Author : Knut V. H?yland and Anders M?llegaard
Two types of freeze-bonds were made in the UNIS cold laboratory. Pieces of ice were put together, submerged and tested. The dependency of their mechanical behaviour on the submersion time, initial ice temperature and sample size was investigated. The first set of experiments used big blocks and aimed at determining the spatial freeze-bond capacity and its variation within the block. The second set of experiments used cylindrical samples that were cut in the middle at 45. In the big blocks experiment, the freeze bonds were stronger in the corners and on the sides than in the middle part of the block, and all samples failed along the freezebonds.
